Rural Locations

Northumberland has a rural landscape like no other place in the world. It is England's most unpopulated County and the home of huge skies, dramatic rolling hills and most importantly of all a sense of peace and complete calm. Head away from the vibrant Towns and Villages and you're immediately immersed in the most spectacular of landscapes where people have lived the same traditional ways for centuries.

A landscape like no other!

A sense of freedom like nowhere else; a landscape of breathtaking proportions; huge skies; air so fresh you can feel the difference; undisturbed nature at it's finest; peace and relaxation.

At the heart of the rural area in the County is the Northumberland National Park, home of the Darkest Skies in Britain and one of the last great populations of Red Squirrels you'll find on these shores. The Cheviot Hills roll through the park providing the perfect walking or cycling holiday along with any number of activities including fishing, rock climbing, orienteering and many other adventure sports. O perhaps you'd prefer to just to sit in guaranteed peace and take in the views of our glorious homeland.

The properties that we list on this page really are the perfect places to get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. We haven't even included those Cottages and places to stay that are located in Villages (even though they might seem incredibly rural to some!) because we wanted a list of truly remote, peaceful and relaxing Cottages. That's not to say they don't have all the facilities you'd expect from a modern day Cottage, some even have tennis courts! Please feel free to browse these wonderful rural retreats below:
